Watch out for pyrite decay with the specimen (it could fall appart).

Thx for the warning. It would be a shame if it gets the dreaded pyrite disease for sure...

The specimen has been treated with brasso and the display box I put some silica gel inside the base with a drilled hole. So it should help somewhat by keeping the moisture and oxygen level reduced, hopefully.
